def vs.GetCWFramesFromPt(hWall, testPt, includeBottomFrame):
    return (BOOLEAN, panelThickness, panelOffset, frameInsetTop, frameInsetBottom, frameInsetRight, frameInsetLeft)


hWall HANDLE Handle to the curtain wall
testPt REAL Point to test on the curtain wall. Typically the center point of the object to be placed in the curtain wall panel.
includeBottomFrame BOOLEAN Include the bottom frame.
panelThickness REAL This is the thickness of the panel as it subtracts from the frames. It is a property of the panel
panelOffset REAL This is the dimension from the center of the panel to the center of the wall
frameInsetTop REAL The frame inset is the distance the panel extends into and subtracts from the frame.
frameInsetBottom REAL
frameInsetRight REAL
frameInsetLeft REAL

Return Value

Returns TRUE if hWall is a curtain wall and frames are found.

Returns FALSE is hWall is not a curtain wall or the test point is not found on the wall.
